Resurfaced nets will take training to the next level
CRICKET: The cricket net practice pitches on Bray St will be resurfaced in the near future after the Coffs Harbour District Cricket Association was successful in receiving a grant from the New South Wales Government.
“It’s not cheap to resurface nets, it can be up to $3000 for each wicket which can be pretty hard to find.” CHDCA president Steve Meakins said.
“We’re very appreciative of Andrew Fraser and their contribution.”
The Coffs Coast Outrigger Canoe Club, Sawtell and District Soccer Club and Sawtell Golf Club, among others, were also the beneficiaries of a grant.
“Tackling childhood obesity and increasing regular and ongoing participation in sport and active recreation for people of all ages is a NSW Government priority,” Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said.
“These funds will help encourage people on the Coffs Coast, regardless of their age or ability, to get involved in sport and active recreation.”
Seven clubs in the region will receive grants ranging from $2000 to $16,000.
